    So is anyone here a fan of RAMEN? I'm not talking about your shitty instant noodle stuff. Proper ramen.
    I personally am addicted to a point I have bought a pressure cooker and pre ordered kilos of Pork bones from butchers to make it (shit ones where I am from).

    I quite often go with friends to make 2 hour drives to a capital where they sell real ramen (better than my homemade).

    Anyone else in this shit position?

    Instant Ramen = BEST Ramen (lol j/k)

    There's a place close to my work that sells it so I'll have to stop in sometime and give it a try :)

    Yep, love it. @Cosmos and I already spent way too much time working on our broth, but it's always worth it. We're trying to get better each time we make ramen.

    Hahahah. Don't get me wrong, I eat alot of instant ramen too. But when you finally experience a proper one, you fall in love. Instant ramen never fully satisfies you anymore.

    What broth do you make?
    I've been working on pork leg/rib bones in a pressure cooker. Which seems to be the only feasible way without spending 10+ hours cooking it.

    We used some pork bones we got at a nice butcher we know, besides all the other ingredients of course. I believe that's the best/fastest way, if you know a butcher, just ask him to buy some pork bones, they usually have a nice stock. :P

    I absolutely love real handmade ramen with a side order of gyoza (Japanese pan fried dumplings). I simply love Japanese cuisine. I don't mind instant stuff though. I have tons of them at home.. Japanese, Korean, Thai, you name it. What I can't take is natto (fermented soybeans) which taste like sweaty feet :dizzy:

    A side order of gyoza goes well with anything, there is no such thing as too much gyoza. :yum:
